House Committees To Probe Issues At MoT
By Wilfred Gortor, LINA

MONROVIA, October 2 (LINA)–The House of Representatives has mandated its committees on Transport and Judiciary to investigate and inform the body in one week about the alleged hike in vehicle registration fees by the Ministry of Transport (MoT).

The House’s decision was prompted by a communication from Lofa County District #1 Representative Eugene Fallah Kparkar accusing the Ministry of taking several actions without the input or consent of the 53rd Legislature.

The communication dated September 29 and read at the 9th Day Extraordinary Sitting of the HouseThursday, quoted Kparkar as saying that MOT is also registering vehicles without issuing plate numbers, something which, he noted, is making it difficult for the police to track wanted vehicles.

The Lofa County lawmaker also informed plenary that about 20,000 people paid for their license plates, but that the MoT has imported less than 10,000 plates, leaving many vehicles plying the streets without license plates.

According to him, the specifics of the new license plates are completely different from what was produced, adding, “The new plates are not reflective and the numbers are not bold.”

A motion to petition the Committees on Transport and Judiciary to conduct an inquiry into these allegations was adopted by the body after it was filed by Montserrado County Representative Munah Youngblood.

It can be recalled that Transport Minister Angela Cassel Bush during an emergency press conference held at the Ministry of Information on September 30, disclosed that the MoT has resolved to issue new license plates to all vehicles that registered in 2015 as a means of clearing the backlog created as a result of the delay in the arrival of license plates in the country.
